Want to Participate in the "Cloaked" Cover Reveal Event?



So, you know I'm working on independently publishing my book Cloaked, which is "Little Red Riding Hood" re-imagined as a western. Like my story in Five Magic Spindles, "The Man on the Buckskin Horse," was "Sleeping Beauty" re-imagined as a western. Same idea, whole new cast of characters and setting and story.

I'm pretty sure you know about this because I've been talking about it on my blogs off-and-on for like a year now.

It's my first time doing the indie-pub thing. I'm nervous. I'm excited. I'm terrified. I'm thrilled. And I'm almost done with this thing at last. Like, seriously, this book will be out in September. I don't have a firm date yet, but it's coming. For real.

(This popped up in my Pinterest feed today.  Perfect timing.)

I'm going to be asking for some Advance Readers soon. Very soon. But first... I'd kind of like to do something fun to celebrate my cover being finished and ready to share. I've been working with graphic designer Erika Ohlendorf on a cover for my book, and... it's basically done. We've got like one more tweak to do. Which means that next week, I will be sharing it with all of you!

I know a number of you, my lovely and supportive and encouraging blogging friends, have been looking forward to seeing what the cover will look like. (And to reading the book, too, I hope!) If you would like to join me in showing off the cover on your blogs or in social media this coming Wednesday, Sept. 6, please email me at rachelkovaciny at gmail dot com with "Cloaked cover reveal" in the subject line.

All participants will receive my gratitude, fake internet points, and an imaginary hug :-)

  1. You already know my answer to this. ;)

    Do you still want an email from me, though, or is that cool? ('Cause I will send you one if you need it or something.)

    1. Nope, I've got your email address, so no need for you to write me! Expect something from me about this in a couple days.

  2. I'm excited to see it. :)

    (I don't do cover reveals, so I can't help you there, but if you need an advanced proof reader, that IS something I can do. And if you need help figuring out how to format for Kindle, let me know. ;)

    1. MC, can you shoot me an email, and I'll get you the cover and other info? Thanks!

      As for advanced readers, I'll put out a call for those soon -- I kind of want to have my release date pretty well set before I ask for advanced readers so they'll know how long they have to read, when to post about it, etc. So you can sign up for that when I put out the call!

  5. I'm so excited to hear your book is almost done! After hearing about it for so long, I feel very excited that the moment is actually arriving!

    I almost wish I had a blog, so that I could participate in the cover reveal.
